Skating on black ice

It might have been a tad delayed but now it is here – keep an eye on this and rejoice!! Meanwhile however we have not been idle, whilst waiting for the snow to fall we took to the lakes – on our blades. Due to the depth of the water the ice looks almost jet black, it also has a tendency to creak and groan as you skate over it which makes for a rather eerie experience!

All this ice means the conditions are perfect for snow making even if it isn’t falling from the skies so that’s the current activity these days, manning the snow machines. It must feel a little like playing God, making enormous amounts of snow and laying it out on the mountains, like some giant canvas – hand made snow and jet black ice – this place is cool!
